Product LifeCycle Management (PLM) is a system for managing all information on a product and product-related processes throughout its entire lifecycle, from design and manufacture to disposal. Products may include technical objects with a varying degree of complexity, such as ships, automobiles, aircraft, rockets, computer networks, etc. The product information stored in a PLM system is a digital mockup of this product.
Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is an organizational strategy for integrating production and operations, human resource management, financial management and asset management, focused on the continual balancing and optimization of enterprise resources through an integrated package of specialized application software, which provides a common data model and processes for all business areas.
